Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
For today I have two special surprise Golden Oldies for your listening pleasure. Please post your comments on both programs on our blog. In addition, each program is one of our older files and is very large. It may not download to your device but for sure it can be played on the device or your computer. I've tested each file on multiple browsers and each program plays just fine.
A. Wally Schirra, Feb. 17 2004 first appearance, https://www.thespaceshow.com/show/17-feb-2004/broadcast-196-special-edition Note what Wally said about returning to the Moon compared to going on to Mars. We still have the same argument today but of course the program of record is Artemis to go to the Moon. But Wally was speaking in 2004. Lots more is known today about human medical factors for long duration spaceflight and BLEO flight . Your thoughts are welcome.
B. Elon Musk, second interview on The Space Show dated May 14, 2003 . He had already started SpaceX, a few months prior. https://www.thespaceshow.com/show/14-may-2003/broadcast-119-special-edition Musk did what he said he would do and much more over the years.
Again, we want to hear from you so post commentary on the blog. In addition, let me know if you liked this series of then and now Golden Oldies. If so, I will do it again when warranted.
Please return for our next live program, Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022 with Doug Messier of Parabolic Arc. Doug has lots to talk about including the SpaceX - FAA matter in Boca revolving around the launch license.
Dr. Space (David L.)
